The game was shipped in two different cabinet styles: a standard/upright, and a sit-down cockpit model known as the "Captain's Chair" equipped with controls on the armrests.
The monitor that Star Trek uses has a tendency to catch fire, a safety hazard that is apparent with many Sega vector arcade games.
This game operates on what is known as Sega G80 hardware. The G80 hardware is a combination of various processors and memory, and its technical specifications depend on whether the game uses vector graphics or raster graphics.
The game was reviewed in a August 1983 issue of Electronic Games magazine, reading: "Star Trek is sure to be a top-grosser in the arcades this year. If you can squeeze through the crowd around the machine, you may never want to leave."
